Did you know that Stan & Shirley were married on Thanksgiving day?! They did so because the store was closed that day. They will be married 60 years this year.

“Large enough to serve you, small enough to know you.”
Sinclair Foods has been around since 1908. They have moved locations a couple times and have been in their current location since 1991. Stanley planned this store for five years. He insisted on having fast food and a drive-thru.

Before working in the store Shirley was a school teacher for 15 years. Stanley has a marketing degree from University if Illinois.

They told us how the grocery business has changed significantly over the years. They didn’t used to sell produce because most people grew their own. The stores used to be so small that the cashier would gather the groceries for the customer. They were ahead of the curve and have delivered groceries for over 50 years!

Stanley was in the marine reserves for 8 years. Shirley said she remembers sitting in the car listening to the radio to hear President Johnson speak, and find out if Stanley was going to have to go to Vietnam. Sitting in that car, she was relieved to hear that he was not going to have to go. It brought tears to Stanley’s eyes thinking about what would have happened if he did have to go, as he would have been a front line man. 

Jersey County is so blessed to have this iconic couple.

Thank you, Stan & Shirley!
